Before I had a traumatic accident, I was a Clinical Practitioner, a surgical assistant on a Neurosurgery Team for many years. I have to say, I am surprised that Dr. Dench lasted this long. It is true on a previous episode, where it was mentioned that the OR staff tend to be tight lipped regarding the cases we do, but if a surgeon neglect to best practices in the light of Dr Dench's malpractice.... Then by all means of responsibility for the patient and their well-being is not being treated in a manner consistent with the American College of Surgeons, or Association of Registered Nurses, the two entities that are in charge of setting standards for "best practices", by which I was bound to...this craziness would never of been stood for had this been reporting by the staff involved in these surgical procedures. Especially in my role, which is the person who is assigned to assist in the neurosurgery with the doctor. He or she, and myself,or whomever is assisting. We are the only sterile people who are involved in the surgery. Scrub Techs as we are known as short hand within the OR, we are trained to know EXACTLY how to do the surgical procedures, mini surgeons so to speak. I'd be surprised if no one, in the scrub roll, did not report his mistakes to their director of the Surgical Procedures Department. Sick...however, fascinating podcasts

All physicians are taught, “First do no harm.” But what happens when a doctor does harm his patients?Dr. Robert Henderson was a veteran spinal surgeon in Dallas when he got an unusual phone call from a local hospital: a new surgeon had operated so poorly that a patient who’d walked in on her own two feet now couldn’t even wiggle her toes. Dr. Henderson had seen a lot, but he wasn't prepared for this. The surgery was so bad, in fact, he asked himself whether this person possibly be an impostor impersonating a physician?“Death Don’t Have No Mercy” performed by Delaney Davidson and Marlon Williams, courtesy of Rough Diamond Records.Please tell us what you think about our show and help us by answering a few questions at wondery.com/surveySubscribe to Dr Death on Apple, Spotify, NPR One, Stitcher or sign up for email updates at wondery.com to stay up to date about future episodes.Support us by supporting our sponsors!Zip Recruiter - Try ZipRecruiter FOR FREE at ziprecruiter.com/death Bombas - Save 20% by visiting bombas.com/death and entering the offer death in the checkout code spaceHelix Sleep - Get up to $125 off your mattress at helixsleep.com/death. Audible - Start a 30-day trial and get your first audiobook free by going to audible.com/death or by texting DEATH to 500-500Brooklinen - Get $20 off AND free shipping by going to brooklinen.com and entering promo code deathSimplisafe - Go to simplisafe.com/doctor and start protecting your home today
